This morning, Wanda and I and a group of invited librarians traveled to visit our colleagues at UNCG. Their Dean, Rosann Bazirjian, invited us to attend in return for a similar visit to WFU a number of years ago. The attendee list may seem quite random: Lynn, Wanda, Susan, Erik, Derrik, Lauren C, Mary Beth, Roz, Molly, Carol, Steve, Carolyn, Megan and Leslie. Rosann sent us a list of librarians from UNCG who were interested in visiting with their counterparts, and we did our best to match people up from our side.
We started the morning at 9:30 in their conference center and spent an hour or so introducing ourselves and talking about our current projects and interests. Then we paired up and went to the library and spent another hour or so. By noon, we were packed up and ready to return, although the new joint Entrepreneurship group got together afterward to begin planning for the next conference.
If anyone wants to talk about their experience, feel free to add to this post. I’m thinking that next summer we may host a group made up of the ZSR librarians who didn’t get to take part in this one and their UNCG equivalents. Let me know if you like that idea!
